John Deeth Blog: Blue Dogs, Boswell a health care obstacle

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

Leonard Boswell's pals in the House Blue Dog Coalition of conservative
Democrats may be the latest barrier to health care reform. The Blue
Dogs Thursday released a statement headed, "Health Care Reform Must
Protect Consumer Choice, Promote Competition in the Marketplace," and
signed by the group's 15 member Health Care Task Force. Boswell's not
part of that subgroup, but is a member of the larger 51 member Blue
Dog Coalition. ... Those 78 Democrats include 2nd District Rep. Dave
Loebsack, but not 1st District Rep. Bruce Braley. But Boswell still
seems to be in good standing with party leadership, as Speaker Nancy
Pelosi is visiting Des Moines with Boswell Saturday.
